We are only having four of us around the table for our Thanksgiving celebration so I thought it would be fun to try creating a lovely set of place cards to help decorate and personalize our tablescape.
I created a set of wreath greeting cards a few years ago as an experiment. Illustrating wreaths always seems to be a trendy thing so I wanted to try it.
I love how they turned out so I used them as inspiration to create matching place cards.
I’m so happy with these lovely additions to our place settings! I’m so excited that I’m going to try this again for Christmas and maybe even New Year’s Eve – check back to see how those turn out.
I think it would be so fun to sell custom name tags like this as a little side gig. Would you order a set for your family gathering?
If you celebrate Thanksgiving, cheers and enjoy your time with family, good food and a little break from work.
In between working on my weekly sketchbook pages of animal art illustrations, and trying to create something everyday, I’m also having fun practicing hand lettering combined with watercolor wreaths. I turned these watercolor postcard paintings into new notecards in my Etsy shop.
Drawing all the time makes me happy, so Practice Practice Practice has been my motto this year. It’s also great to be able to add new products to my etsy shop based on my drawings and watercolor paintings.
Last week was quite an eventful week full of celebrations.
We celebrated my birthday with presents, a special coffee treat, pizza for lunch, and hiking.
Then we celebrated Thanksgiving with a day of catching up with my family and cooking together.
Then we enjoyed my family’s annual Cookie Day, a full day of marathon cookie making. I think we made over 20 varieties this year!
Stop by our Flickr group to see the art Michelle and Sandra have been creating over the past year. I love to see how different our styles are. I am impressed with how clever they are in illustrating their daily lives.
